Like auto dealers, casinos look to move cars at the end of the month. Many South Florida venues use earning entries to a car giveaway as a means to attract patrons throughout the month. So a three-day weekend such as the one coming up gives them even more opportunities:
Seminole Classic in Hollywood awards an Infiniti QX50 at 11 p.m. Friday. Players have had all month to earn one drawing entry for every one comp dollar earned or for every $200 wagered on table games.
Miccosukee Resort & Gaming gives away a GMC truck at midnight Friday. Slot players who hit a jackpot of $1,200 or more are eligible for the drawing, as well as poker players actively playing on Fridays.
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek gives away a Range Rover Evoque both Saturday and Sunday. Eight patrons will be called hourly from 5-9 p.m. and two will make the final drawing. Guests may insert their Seminole Wild Card into any slot machine daily for one free entry and receive an additional entry for every $4 Comp Dollars earned or $800 wagered on table games.
The Isle Casino gives away a Maserati at 11 p.m. Saturday. The casino has been drawing two finalists every 20 minutes from 4-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the month. The patrons also receive $200 in free play.
Most of the time, the casinos offer a cash option, usually about two-thirds the value of the vehicle. So if you’re already cruising the town in a nice ride, it’s still a win.
